Make a Dent – Textile Recycling Expands Again!
2013 saw 12 additional Greenmarket locations become available for textile recycling, bringing the total to 26 drop-sites, and providing 30 opportunities each week for the public to recycle their unwanted bedspreads and jeans. That fabric adds up: textiles make up 6% of the waste stream. Over 142,000 New Yorkers have particpated in this convenient program, over 49,000 this year alone! Our expansion means we’re diverting textiles in all five boroughs.
